Tonight from 7-9pm (Eastern) in Washington DC the Lady Liberty League will be holding their 25th Anniversary Reception at the Universalist National Memorial Church. Pagan chaplain Patrick McCollum, who just received the Mahatma Gandhi Award for the Advancement of Religious Pluralism, will be honored.
“Join national and regional Pagan Rights activists, spiritual leaders, and practitioners of many traditions in this interfaith celebration. Founded in 1985, Lady Liberty League (LLL) is a national and global Pagan civil rights and religious freedom organization. LLL is coordinated by Circle Sanctuary, an Ecospirituality center and Shamanic Wiccan church that has been serving Pagans worldwide since 1974. This special evening includes networking, refreshments, and remarks by Selena Fox of Wisconsin, Lady Liberty League’s Founder and Executive Director, and Patrick McCollum of California, LLL Chaplaincy Affairs Director and among this year’s recipients of the Hindu American Foundation’s Mahatma Ghandi Award for the Advancement of Religious Pluralism. The evening will include an overview of the history and accomplishments of Lady Liberty League, including its origins in September 1985 in the networking that defeated federal anti-Wiccan legislation.”
For those who can’t be in Washington DC to attend, they will be live-streaming the ceremony on the Internet. You can find the link for the stream, here. I’ve also embedded it below.
In addition to Selena Fox and Patrick McCollum, several other Pagan leaders are planning to participate in the reception, including Marci Drewry, Director of Military Affairs, Sacred Well Congregation, Holli Emore, Executive Director, Cherry Hill Seminary, and Peter Dybing, First Officer-Elect, Covenant of the Goddess. So if you get the chance, tune in!
